The DA was only willing to offer a plea that would eliminate my current charges, 4 felonies and 1 misdemeanor and add 2 felonies that were higher and different.. One of them would be a strike. Now the judge has ordered a pre-plea with the probation department, and he set the guidelines to be 365 days in jail and probation - up to 3 years in prison. I'm a first-time offender, and the incident happened 1 year and a half ago. The DA waited almost 1 year to file. I have posted bail twice since the DA took so long to file, 1 set at $55k and the 2nd was set at $30k. I'm just curious on how it works compared to a plea from the DA.
A pre-plea report is a technically an evaluation and recommendation by the probation department, re: sentencing and disposition. The intricacies of which you should be discussing with your attorney, if you don't have one, get one. Best of luck
